UKLPG urges LP gas users to be prepared this winter

After a mild start to the winter, the recent cold snap has prompted UKLPG, the trade body for the Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gas industry, to advise householders and business owners to check their LP Gas supply.

 

In line with government advice, UKLPG is urging the 150,000 homes and businesses in the UK that currently use LP Gas for heat and hot water to #getaheadforwinter and place an order now, while suppliers have spare delivery capacity and weather conditions are still fairly favourable.

 

Chief executive of UKLPG, Rob Shuttleworth, said: “While many LP Gas suppliers have sophisticated customer data systems which will automatically guarantee customers’ tanks are topped up for winter, those users who place their own manual orders should take immediate action to ensure they have a steady supply of heat over the remaining winter months.

 

He continued: “By planning ahead, home and business users can ensure they have enough heat for when the weather gets even colder, as well as minimising the impact of snow and ice disrupting deliveries. This applies to customers who use LP Gas cylinders as well, who should make sure they have enough spare capacity in the case of blocked roads preventing delivery.

 

Mr Shuttleworth also pointed out that LP gas users should ensure that all appliances have been checked and serviced by a Gas Safe registered installer within the past 12 months and that they have done as much as they can to insulate against cold weather.
